Triple Berry Pie, Apple Pie, Pecan Pie oh my! Another Thanksgiving is in the books and as anticipated, it was busier, more hectic and welcomed than the one before, which is a good thing! I’ve read and studied a lot about starting a small business and a food business at that, and it’s every bit as challenging and unforgiving as veteran small business owners and entrepreneurs make it out to be. With that being said, want to take a stab at what our most popular and top selling pie was over the Thanksgiving Holiday?
And Winner, and STILL Champion…
Triple Berry Pie
Yes! The Pie Addict Triple Berry pie was our most requested, most popular and our top selling pie for Thanksgiving 2019. But not by much! Our time-honored, family-recipe, Apple Pie was just a couple pies behind! Next were our Bourbon Pumpkins and then our rising favorite, our Bourbon Peach Hand Pies.
The Triple Berry pie was a fan favorite last Thanksgiving and its dominance continues through the end of 2019. The pie was one of the first pies The Pie Addict used to kick-off of this ‘journey’ and it continues to win over hearts and minds month-in and month-out.
And, while the Triple Berry has been commanding the majority of the attention over the last year or so, I would say the RISING STAR on the menu is our collection of delicious hand pies – of which we make 3 currently (Apple Cinnamon, Raspberry and Bourbon Peach), with more flavors on the way.
Hand pies are essentially our small, guilt-free portions of pie, you can enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning, a sweet, pick-me-up snack, mid-afternoon at the office or a light dessert just after dinner. They’re also a nice and refreshing change from the typical box of donuts at the morning meeting or brown-bag training session at work. I can’t tell you how many customers have ‘tested the waters’ in their office by bringing in a couple boxes of hand pies instead of the tired and typical box of Krispy Kremes, and have staff request they bring in hand pies the next meeting and the meeting after that!
Pie Addict Hand Pies will CHANGE THE GAME in 2020. Mark my words! Give them a try and see for yourself, if you haven’t already!
Thanksgiving is now officially over and Christmas is already upon us. I don’t even want to begin to tell you how many orders we had to turn away at the Pie Addict, that came in after our deadline to order had passed. We tell folks weeks in advance to place their orders and get on our schedule, and yet many still procrastinate until the last minute and miss the deadline. Don’t be THAT person, who has to pick up a mass-produced, store-bought pie at the local grocer because they waited for weeks before getting an order scheduled with us.
Christmas may seem like a long ways off, but more-often-than-not, LIFE HAPPENS, time rolls by quicker than expected and next thing you know, you’re having dinner on Christmas or Christmas Eve with an unimpressive, lackluster tasting store-bought dessert. How quaint.
Get ahead of the game! Get those orders scheduled in-advance today!
